GOD IS GOODNESS
Imagine this: a God beyond the sky
Who guides and guards us humans here below,
Just as from in our cradles, looking high,
We saw a smiling parent who’d bestow
The nourishment and succor we desired,
Protecting us from terrors and from harm,
Providing us with all that we required,
Relieving us of every care and qualm.
Is God but this—a childhood fantasy
Extrapolated from our memories
Diverting us from whom we ought to be:
The source of our responsibilities?
Yes, God is human good personified,
Which it’s our highest mission to provide.
